A couple of months ago, The Cat’s Meow reprinted a story about a working cat in Michigan named Larry who went missing. I’m thrilled to report that Larry was found three weeks later, and is back at her post at Michigan Coating Products.

Phyllis Anderson, a Michigan Coating employee who oversees Larry’s care, contacted The Cat’s Meow to share the good news. Larry had been found in the warehouse of the shop next door.

The Cat’s Meow: When the shop next door found Larry in their warehouse, was she in good health?
Phyllis: She was in good health, but had lost a little weight! I don’t think she was in the warehouse the entire time, but I do believe she had been there for awhile.

The Cat’s Meow: What was the reaction at Michigan Coatings when Larry was found?
Phyllis: Everyone here at Michigan Coatings was so happy she was back. When Carol announced over the intercom that Larry was home, everyone came running.

The Cat’s Meow: Does Larry appear to be happy to be back at her post at Michigan Coatings?
Phyllis: Yes, Larry is happy to be home! She is so spoiled here!! She has a routine and has an attitude!

The Cat’s Meow: Is she still the same psycho kitty?
Phyllis: I do believe she’s calmed down a little and is not quite as psycho as she was, but you still have to be a little careful because sometimes if she wants your attention and you ignore her you may be in trouble!

The Cat’s Meow: How does Larry think the Detroit Tigers are going to do this year?
Phyllis: Larry is not sure about the Tigers because sometimes they start out ok but then slack off but if you tried to put a Lions shirt on her….look out she may react bad to that..it might embarrass her!

The Cat’s Meow: Thanks, Phyllis, for taking the time to update us on Larry’s return! I’m sure our readers will be thrilled to her she’s safe and sound.
Phyllis: Thanks for your interest in Queen Larry the cat!! We are waiting for one of the late night talk show hosts to contact us to bring Larry to their show…..LOL…we may have to buy her a tiara…
